Air Date: February 4, 1963.
At his high school class reunion, Andy finds that while memories may fade over time, some connections are never completely broken, and some hearts never completely heal.
Barney's full name is Bernard Milton Fife, contradicting his middle name being Oliver in "A Plaque for Mayberry" (4/3/1961).
Thelma Lou is curiously absent during this episode. The class reunion episode from season six implies that Thelma Lou was a member of Andy and Barney's graduating class.
There is a brief reference to Barney's father in this episode. Andy's response seems to indicate that his father has passed away. Barney's mother actually appears in a season one episode. Andy's parents are never mentioned in the series.
The banner at the reunion says "Welcome Class of 1945." In the sixth season, the episode "The Return of Barney Fife" took place at another class reunion with a banner "Welcome Class of 1947."
While the high school was usually referred to as "Mayberry Union High", as in this episode, it was also called "Mayberry Central High".
